        Peintre de la Vie Moderne

      1923. BAUDELAIRE, Charles. Le Peintre de la Vie Moderne, Constantin Guys. Paris: Éditions René Kieffer, (1923). Folio, contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately blind-tooled spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1500.Limited first illustrated edition, number 123 of 550 copies, of BaudelaireÂ’s highly influential essay in which he differentiates the modern age from that which came before, with 16 plates of watercolors by Constantin Guys, whose work inspired Baudelaire to write the essay. Beautifully bound by René Kieffer.Constantin Guys “has everywhere sought after the fugitive, fleeting beauty of present-day life, the distinguishing character of that quality which, with the readerÂ’s kind permission, we have called ‘modernityÂ’. Often weird, violent and excessive, he has contrived to concentrate in his drawings that acrid or heady bouquet of the wine of life” (Le Peintre de la Vie Moderne). With these words, Baudelaire named, and created, the modernist movement. Baudelaire “was a precursor of modern poetry by his perception of the symbolic correspondences of colors, scents, and sounds, by his exploration of the musical possibilities of the French language, and above all by his evocative power” (Harvey & Heseltine, 53-54). While this was first published in 1863, it was not until this lovely 1923 edition that BaudelaireÂ’s words were united in one volume with the watercolors by Guys that inspired them. Text in French. Original wrappers and spine bound in. Small binderÂ’s ticket.A handsome, fine copy, beautifully bound and illustrated.

        Autograph postcard signed with original sketches

      1923. Signed. EINSTEIN, Albert. Autograph postcard signed with original sketches. Near Jerusalem, circa February 5, 1923. Postcard illustrated with a rendering of the Red Star Liner Belgenland, measuring 5-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches, with two sketches by Einstein on the recto and autograph letter by Einstein in German (along with an autograph letter by his traveling companion) on the verso. $49,000.Extremely rare autograph postcard signed written by Einstein during his visit to Palestine—one of only a couple manuscript items from this visit known to exist—featuring a very rare self-portrait sketch by Einstein as well as a sketch of the traveling companion he mentions in his letter. Letter in German.Einstein writes to noted Zionist Arthur Ruppin in full (translated from German): ""To my dear Mr. Ruppin, We are having unforgettable days in Palestine. With the sun shining, in cheerful company. Your wife is standing next to me and looking at what I am writing about her. She is counting the days until you come back. Yours, A. Einstein."" (At the time, Ruppin had been on an extended fundraising trip in the United States, see: Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, December 15, 1922.) Above his note, Hanna Ruppin also writes her husband (translated): ""Dear Arthur, A pleasant tour of the city. Included is a picture by Prof. Einstein. Warm greetings, Hanna."" True to her word, on the recto, Einstein had drawn a diminutive self-portrait (signed below) together with a rendering of ""Frau Ruppin."" Above the drawings, he added the words, ""Jerusalem,"" ""Heiligenschein"" (or ""halo"") with an arrow pointing to the halo-like marks over his self-portrait's head. Einstein's depiction of himself as a rotund, almost comical figure stands in contrast to the elegantly-dressed ""Frau Ruppin"" with her stylish hat, shapely figure and umbrella. A newly minted celebrity following the reception of the 1921 Nobel Prize for physics, Einstein was on his return to Europe following a six-month lecture tour that took him as far as Japan in late 1922. He returned to Europe via Sri Lanka and the Suez Canal, stopping at Port Said on February 1, 1923 for two weeks in Palestine. Einstein made the stop at the invitation of Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943), an early Zionist thinker and leader. Academically trained in Germany in economics and law, Ruppin was awarded the Krupp prize in 1899 for his dissertation on Darwinism and industry. He joined the Zionist Organization in 1905 and acted as a land agent to purchase land in Palestine in order to facilitate the migration of European Jews. From 1933 to 1935, he headed the Jewish Agency which assisted German Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in settling in Palestine. At the time of Einstein's visit to Palestine, Ruppin was on an extended fundraising tour in the United States (Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, December 15, 1922, p. 10). From Port Said, Einstein boarded a train for Jerusalem, where he was greeted not unlike a visiting head of state in light of his of recent scientific achievements, as well as his support of the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. The first night, Einstein was the guest of an aide to the British High Commissioner for the Palestinian Mandate and he spent the next two days informally touring the Old City, as well as taking a trip to the Dead Sea via Jericho. February 5th marked the first day of his official tour organized by the Zionists. Writing in his travel diary, he recorded (translated): ""Tour of two Jewish colonial settlements west of Jerusalem, belonging to the city. The construction is carried out by Jewish workers' cooperative in which the leaders are elected. The workers arrive without specialized knowledge or expertise and achieve excellence after a short time. The leaders are paid no more than the workers."" According to corresponding sources, Einstein's first visit that morning was to the suburb of Beth Hakerem, in the west of Jerusalem, accompanied by Hanna Ruppin, together with Hadassah Samuel and Solomon Ginzburg. (see: Ha'aretz and Doar Hayom, February 7, 1923, and Kark and Oren-Nordheim 2001, p. 169). On the afternoon of February 7th, Einstein delivered the inaugural lecture on the future sight of the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus, an institution in which he was intimately involved . There, he apologized for not being able to deliver his address in Hebrew and then proceeded to give a 90 minute talk (in perfect French) outlining his theory of relativity (Einstein, Collected Papers, Volume 13, p. lxvi). After Jerusalem, Einstein travelled to Tel Aviv, where Mayor Meir Dizengoff bestowed him the honor of honorary citizenship, upon which he remarked, ""I have already had the privilege of receiving an honorary citizenship of the City of New York, but I am tenfold happier to be a citizen of this beautiful Jewish town."" In his travel diary, Einstein recorded his favorable impressions of the young Jewish settlement: ""The accomplishments of the Jews in just a few years in this city arouses the highest admiration… An incredibly active people, our Jews."" (Travel Diary, February 8, 1923). His tour continued with visits to Haifa and Tiberious, and ending in Jerusalem before he departed via rail for Port Said the morning of February 14th. On February 16th, he embarked on the R.M.S. Ormuz for Marseilles. From there he travelled to Spain, delivering lectures in Barcelona and Madrid. Although Einstein would never again travel to Palestine, he continued to support efforts to promote Jewish settlement and especially the Hebrew University. Upon the death of Israel's first President, Chaim Weizmann, Abba Eban, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, formally offered him the post. Although deeply moved by the offer, he did not believe himself qualified for such a position. (New York Times, Nov. 19, 1952, p. 1) Although Einstein used a postcard for the Red Star Line, Belgenland, he did not sail aboard the ship as it had yet to make its maiden voyage (April 1923). However, Einstein's last voyage to Europe was aboard the Belgenland in 1933. Arriving in Antwerp, he learned that Adolf Hitler had become Chancellor of Germany. Realizing that he could never reside in Germany again, he left, first for Great Britain, and then the United States, where he became a citizen in 1940. This letter is extremely rare. Letters written by Einstein during his only visit to Palestine are virtually unknown and no examples have appeared at auction for the past forty years. The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein record only two other pieces of manuscript (apart from his travel diary) written during this period: a February 11, 1923 ALS to Chaim Weizmann written from Haifa (location of original not presently known) and an ALS, February 14, 1923, written to Arthur S. Eddington (now part of the collections of the University of Cambridge). Although Einstein was known to accomplish drawings, signed self-portraits are virtually unknown. We are aware of only three other examples, none of which have ever sold at public auction (nor are we aware of a private sale of the same). Faint horizontal crease with a tiny tear at left margin does not affect the drawings or Einstein's note on the verso, minor rub spot below address line. About-fine condition.

        Lytton Strachey. Original water-color caricature of Lytton Strachey, 10 x 4 ¼ inches, signed and dated "Max 1923" in the lower left corner of the drawing

      In the picture, which bears the title "Echo", a little girl looks up at the lanky Strachey, who is leaning against the mantel of a fireplace, and says "Why, Uncle Lytton, oh why." Beerbohm first encountered Strachey in 1912 at the Savile Club, and finally met him in person in 1917. After the publication of Strachey's Eminent Victorians, the four essays of which Beerbohm considered perfect as works of art, Beerbohm wrote to Strachey to express his admiration. After the Great War, when Beerbohm was in London, the two men met "pretty often", as Beerbohm put it, and became friends. In 1943, Beerbohm delivered the Rede Lecture at Cambridge University, and chose Lytton Strachey as his subject. At the conclusion of his lecture, Beerbohm notes that Strachey dedicated his last book, Portraits in Miniature and Other Essays (1931) to Beerbohm "with gratitude and admiration", and Beerbohm returns the favor: "To him I dedicate this lecture with far greater gratitude than ever he can have felt to me, and with far deeper admiration than ever he can have had for anything of mine." One of Beerbohm's most popular caricatures, which he seems to have repeated in slightly different versions; another example on record measures slightly larger, 12 x 6 ½ inches. The original drawing was reproduced in Things New and Old (1923), plate 29. Framed and glazed.

        Le diable au corps

      First edition, one advance (service de presse) copy.Handsome autograph inscription from Raymond Radiguet to Léon Daudet: « A monsieur Léon Daudet avec ma profonde admiration. » Raymond Radiguet fait la connaissance de Léon Daudet par l'entremise de son frère Lucien Daudet, très lié à Jean Cocteau depuis sa jeunesse. Radiguet avait nourri pour Léon Daudet, alors député de Paris et membre de l'Action française, une fervente admiration qui s'était muée, très peu de temps avant son propre décès, en critique acerbe.L'origine de ce brusque revirement se trouve dans le scandale provoqué par le suicide du fils de Léon Daudet, Philippe, en novembre 1923 : le député, pour sauver son honneur, soutient la thèse d'un assassinat politique par des membres de la Sûreté Générale, à qui il reproche leurs idées républicaines. Radiguet, touché par la mort de l'adolescent, est révolté par l'attitude du père et, dans un mouvement d'humeur, écrit dans son journal : « Léon Daudet. Il est trop protégé par la République. Le déploiement de forces fait autour de lui, non par [les] Camelots du Roi, mais par le Gouvernement. Son assassinat serait peut-être deuil national, mais n'attristerait pas beaucoup ni profondément. Ce qui fait que je ne l'aime plus, c'est qu'on l'aime trop, c'est qu'il est comme les autres hommes politiques - un peu mieux, oui - Léon Daudet, c'est la Troisième République. Charles Maurras est mieux, quoique pas admirable, mais s'il est vulgaire, sa vulgarité est d'une époque antérieure à celle de Léon Daudet. » (RD,
